Timing out Elsa’s path

We expect Tropical Storm Elsa to ramp up in Connecticut this morning now through 8 a.m. It looks like it could leave the state between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Friday. New London, Middlesex, and New Haven counties, the shoreline, are currently under a Tropical Storm Warning. The whole state is under a Flash Flood Watch.

We are expecting between 1” and 5” of rain, with possible flash flooding. Wind gusts could be over 40 miles per hour, which can trigger power outages.

There is a possibility of one or a few tornado warnings Friday morning. They might be quick-moving, with little to no warning.

Once Elsa is said and done in the Nutmeg State, we may see some thunderstorms roll through Friday evening and throughout the weekend.
